Reflections on the book
David Epston, MSW, Co-founder, Narrative Therapy; from the Foreword(Click here to read the entire Foreword)
“This is a breakthrough book. It offers teachers and students in human service work a way to transcend classroom walls (and mindsets) by adding the fifth dimension of the Internet. Any teacher or student of relationship therapy will be inspired by the many examples of ‘learning on a cloud’ that Sax puts into her (cyber) spacecraft of a delicious, lively book.“
Lynn Hoffman, LICSW, Author, Exchanging Voices: A Collaborative Approach to Family Therapy; Family Therapy: An Intimate Journey
“Without being taught in any didactic or pedantic way, you cannot help but find yourself responding, reflecting and learning. In her hands, teaching and learning merge and learners become authorities on their own learning experience. Peggy Sax provides a model to aspire to of how online learning platforms can be used to enrich learning. I know of no better account of how to teach and to learn therapeutic practice in the era of online learning.“
John Winslade, PHD, Coordinator of Educational Counseling Program, Dept. of Educational Psychology & Counseling, California State University, San Bernardino. Author of Narrative Counseling in Schools: Powerful & Brief
